Assuming that you are having rice with at least a good serving of protein and you are spreading out your calories over at least 6 meals then it probably does not matter much which you choose...

Practically speaking total glycemic load is more important (GI x quantity). So if you compare 1/2 cup of each, the difference in glycemic load will be 4 times smaller than if you compare 2 cups of each.
This is also why I made the comment about more frequent, smaller meals. As the quantities become smaller GI differences matter less. Remember though that higher GI foods are generally more processed and have less overall nutrition.
Think of arguing which is the faster car, a Porsche or a Ferrari? Sure you can use the top speeds that Road & Track got on the track, but does it really matter? You will never come close to either because of limitations on the street.
